Cards target another away win

Bromley v Woking
3pm on Saturday 17 October 2009
The Cards travel to Bromley on Saturday, hoping to maintain their wonderful away form, which has seen them notch five wins and one draw on their travels in the league so far. Bromley wonâ€™t be a soft touch but, with Newport and Dover setting a hot pace above us, Graham will be looking for another three points from this game if at all possible. Another performance like that at Chelmsford City would surely do the trick.
Woking have no players suspended for this game and were expecting to have a full complement of players available bar Jon Boardman, Billy Hussey and Moses Ademola. It seems likely, therefore, that Tony Sinclair will resume his central defensive partnership with Tom Hutchinson, with Joe McNerney, whoâ€™s performed very creditably, dropping to the bench. Graham will have some difficult choices to make in midfield and attack, with Jamie Hand challenging Mark Ricketts for a midfield role, and several choices to partner Wilfried Domoraud up front. Cards fans will be hoping that Wilfried can maintain the goal a game ratio heâ€™s established in the matches against Chelmsford City and Maidstone United since his return to the Club.
I hope to speak to Graham tomorrow to get a final update on the injury situation.
Bromley, who finished 13th last year, have made a reasonably promising start to the season and now lie in 9th place in the table, having won five, drawn three and lost four games. A fortnight ago, however, the Lillywhites were on the end of a 4-0 drubbing at Maidenhead United, with Manager Mark Goldberg claiming that they were outmuscled by their hosts. Last Saturday they disposed of Tonbridge Angels in the Cup and now have a potentially winnable tie at home to ailing Ebbsfleet United in the next round.

Ex-Card Barry Moore is First Team Coach and the Bromley squad includes another ex-Card in midfielder Robbie Kember. Harrison Dunk is a highly-rated left back, while Rob Gillman, who started his career with Luton Town, provides the central defensive experience. Mark Corneille has been in good form in midfield. The main danger comes from in-form Warren McBean, who was originally with Barnet during their Conference-winning days and has since played for Farnborough and Sutton, where he was their leading scorer for two seasons. He has already notched seven goals. His strike partner is Gareth A Williams, who was a Welsh U21 international and has had experience at several League clubs. He has scored 51 goals in 109 appearances for the Lillywhites. He is not to be confused with keeper Gareth I Williams!
